There is a need to examine your throat. If there is follicular tonsillitis or severe pharyngitis and some other antibiotic may need to be started. Till then do hot saline gargles and consult further.

Cough with little sputum is an indication of infection in the chest. The infection may have been caused due to any bacteria or virus including the tb bacteria. The symptoms of tuberculosis are cough with sputum of usually more than 2 weeks of duration. Low grade fever, usually coming daily, felt more in the evening. There will be loss of appetite and weight loss. The blood in sputum can be a symptom of just an acute infection as well as of tb. You must get your self checked with a doctor, who may advice you to get chest x ray done and if needed sputum to be tested for tb bacteria. But please do not ignore your cough, and get the treatment.

I am sure you are aware that diabetes is a condition that remains for life time. If your sugar levels are under control it is only because of medication plus diet control, exercise and weight control. I am not aware whether you are observing all the above. But these are an essential part of the treatment. The moment you stop the drugs and and all the above the disease will go out of control. Hence the treatment is life long.

I m 33 years old suffering from diabetes. please provide me. Proper diet to avoid diabetes.

I m 33 years old suffering from diabetes. please provide me. Proper diet to avoid diabetes.
Hye, Thanks for the query. For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - The sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250mg/dl. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well.            It's all a matter of discipline.

There is no cure for diabetes. It can be controlled only by diet exercise and drugs. Diabetic diet is normal balanced diet what you usually eat at home. Only you have to avoid sugar, junk food, fried food and fruit juices.

MBBS
General Physician, Trivandrum
You are most probably suffering from irritable bowel syndrome or even malabsorption syndrome. In this condition the frequency and urge to go to toilet increases especially just after meals. Ibs can be caused due to many reasons out of which stress is one important cause. When your life and body are stressed, it can lead to ibs. You need to practice deep breathing and relaxation techniques. If your symptoms are not improved, you need to take prescription medication for a period of time.

They are publishing the drug caripill as to increase the platelet count in dengue fever and in my personal experience if we treat the cause platelet count increases on its own. And as you r already having itp I would say not to take drugs like caripill instead actually there is no harm in eating natural papaya leaves.

If your headache is associated with cold, nasal congestion, blocked nose or pain in the areas in between cheeks and lower eyelid or pain in supraorbital area. Then try taking steam inhalation. If problem is cured then it cud b ENT issue. Consult a ENT if problem is frequent. If headache associated with blurring of vision you need to check your eyesight. Once get your blood pressure checked. Hydrate yourself with adequate water. Revert if headache associated wit any other complaints.

Mr. Lybrate-user, healthy food intake is essential for maintaining good health. Excess of anything is bad. When one consumes excess sweets sucrose intake goes up, which a simple carbohydrate, it does put load on insulin, plus taking excess sucrose (sugar) has been proved to be unhealthy in the long run. Excess sugar or extra carbs taken will get converted to fat and weight increase can occur. Fortunately you are having less weight, but if this habit continues, weight increase can be a consequence. There is nothing like balancing between excess sweet eating and maintaining normal blood sugar. My advice is to reduce the sweets eating. There is no specific remedy for that, you simply have decide and reduce the intake. Care has to be taken if there is a family history of t2 diabetes. Thanks.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Size of penis never matters in a sexual intercourse. Love and passion matters and determines the sexual pleasure. Average size of erect penis is 5 inches. But even a two inch erect penis can satisfy any woman across the world just because, woman sexual nerve endings which is the reason for pleasure for women, are available only up to two inches from the opening of vagina. Therefore, please don't worry. I suggest online sex education and counseling. Take care.
